Brighton & Hove Albion 1 Chelsea 1

Albion drew at home to Chelsea with most of the action taking place in the extremities of the match.

New signing Timo Werner scored for the Blues after just four minutes.

Chelsea’s squad was reported to have been ravaged by Covid-19 infections and players in quarantine.

It was a much changed experience for the fans, with just under 2,500 allowed in the stadium.

Regular guidance to use hand gel was provided at various stations throughout the stadium and there was the obligatory temperature check.

Both teams made several changes throughout the match, with one of Albion’s substitutes, Pascal Gross, equalising for the Seagulls in the last minute from the penalty spot.

The almost infamous Ben White and the much-lauded goalkeeper Christian Walton both saw match action for the Albion.
